Why are stem cells better than steroids?
Let’s break it down.
The reality is, the two of them are on the opposite ends of the spectrum.
Cortisone shots may help with pain for a couple days or weeks, but the short term relief is not worth all the negative side effects.
What are some of those side effects?
Research shows that cortisone breaks the joint down more.
We’re seeing patients who get these shots have far more issues in the future than they did from the initial injury.
Not only that, but these steroid shots can cause:
· Increased appetite
· Weight gain
· Fluid retention
· Indigestion and/or hiccups
· Flushing of face
· Elevated blood pressure
· Increased blood sugar
· Delayed wound healing
· Suppressed adrenal gland hormone function
· Fungal infections (yeast infections in women or oral thrush)
Just to name a few.
On the other end of the spectrum is stem cells.
With stem cells, we use material to rebuild the joint or damaged area.
These cells can become cartilage, ligaments, and even bone.
Not only that…
They have the ability to replicate themselves and keep producing for months and months at a time!
That’s the way we’ve been able to rebuild hundred and hundreds of joints at this clinic alone.
So, if you’re taking steroid shots for an injury and would like a method that can actually rebuild the damaged area…
